Orange, Gold & Scarlet



Dating Your Leo Woman

Chances are you have succeeded in the near impossibility of dating a Leo woman. The Queen of the jungle is the most dominant and extroverted of all the zodiac signs. Your Lioness is strong willed when it comes to matters of the heart like family, religion or philosophy. Miss Leo is also humane and benevolent. That is, until you disrupt her queendom. You don’t want to cross her, for she will strike back hard. She will forgive you, however, and will rarely hold a grudge. She gets her resilience from her ruling astrological planet, the Sun.

Like the Sun, Miss Leo likes to be the brightest person in the room. She enjoys glitz, glamour, and celebrating her womanhood. She thrives in the spotlight is where she is most comfortable. Her creativity is way above the other zodiac signs. She likes to pamper herself in ways a queen deserves to be pampered. She is, after all, the Royal Lioness, and the Sun makes her shine in every room. Miss Leo is a beautiful woman who makes her own spectacular solar flares.

Leo Woman in Love

Before Miss Lioness will fall for you, she must be courted, wooed, wined and dined. Compliments and flattery are extremely important to her. She enjoys a life of luxury, so be prepared to work for her. She will not accept second place or runner up to anybody or anything. She is first or she is gone.

Miss Leo, unlike her male counterpart the Lion, is quite skeptical, and won’t fall in love quickly. She does fall hard, however, when it happens. Miss Leo makes a terrific wife and mom, and she will defend her family like the lioness she is. Your Leo lady is also the most romantic of all the zodiac signs. She is giving, kind and loyal to anyone or any cause that holds her heart. As long as she is shown appreciation for all she is and does, she will never stray.

Leo Sun Signs are not Always the Same

Of course it is crazy to assume that all Leos are exactly alike. We are all individual creatures with unique personalities, priorities and beliefs. To get a much more accurate idea of someone’s personality, it is best to have a birth chart, also called a natal chart.

The birth chart is a snapshot of the sky, as seen from the place of birth at the time of birth. Yes, even if your Lioness is born under the Sun sign of Leo, there are many, many influences that can alter her basic personality traits.

There are 12 houses, 9-10 astrological planets and various aspects to take into consideration. It is also important to understand one’s moon sign and rising sign to get a better idea of how that person processes thoughts, works, amuses himself, and lives life in general.

There are also three major influences in a person’s birth chart. The Rising sign, also called the Ascendant, is the zodiac sign (or constellation) on the eastern horizon of the Earth at the time you were born. The Sun sign is the zodiac sign where the sun was in when you were born. The Moon sign is the zodiac sign where the moon was in when you were born. However powerful these three major influences are, the multitude of other aspects can disrupt the influence of one, two, or all three of them.
